The first part of the trail is a descent down a steep boardwalk followed by a short downhill scramble over thick tree roots. We were surrounded by other hikers with similar goals, and took care not to trip over anything on the ground. Entering the train evoked feelings of deep nostalgia, and I allowed myself to bask in the quiet, listen to the faded conversations of strangers around me, and appreciate the warmth of the air contrasting the cool breeze of the shade. At the bottom of the scramble, we encountered a flat gravel space in the trees with a few benches and the bridge that we would use to cross the train tracks below.
